Darby & Darby’s Offices at 7 WTC by GKV Architects

In an important leasing transaction at the country’s first LEED Gold-certified commercial office building, the IP law firm Darby & Darby has moved into two floors at 7 World Trade Center.

The intellectual property law firm Darby & Darby moved into the 41st and 42nd floors of LEED Gold-certified 7 World Trade Center last June. Gerner Kronick + Valcarel, Architects (“GKV”) designed the firm’s 80,000-square-foot space, which includes a stainless steel, tension rod-suspended glass staircase that connects a two-story conference/multi-purpose room.

GKV’s design emphasizes the natural light provided by 7 WTC’s floor to ceiling windows. Stretch fabric ceilings were installed in each of the office’s conference rooms and glass sidelights connect perimeter office doors to maximize light penetration into the interior. Darby & Darby signed a 15-year lease for the space; the firm relocated from offices at 805 Third Avenue in Midtown.
